So we give a 500 million dollars to Planned Parenthood and the “political arm” contributes to the golden arm of the Democratic party and one Hillary Clinton and this case tries to unseat Sen. Ron Johnson. This from 2016 Planned Parenthood gets over $500 million annually in public funds …
Remember this? Clinton pays Planned Parenthood campaign funds to ‘get out the vote’March 7, 2016 —
and this one Planned Parenthood paid millions in Medicaid fraud settlements July 29, 2015
Alliance Defending Freedom’s recent analysis of state and federal audits of family planning programs suggests that in 12 states, Planned Parenthood affiliates overbilled Medicaid for more than $8 million. One federal audit of New York’s Medicaid family planning program reported that certain providers, “especially Planned Parenthoods,” had engaged in improper practices resulting in overpayment.
There’s a whopping four-paragraph story headlined “Planned Parenthood finalizes $4.3 million lawsuit settlement.” That was an update of the earlier story they ran — the seven-sentence AP story that said the settlement was $1.3 million.
Hemingway summarized it perfectly:
Isn’t it just fascinating, though, that a private breast cancer charity (Susan B. Komen foundation) choosing to not give money to a massively federally funded group (that provides 300,000 abortions a year but zero mammograms) is top of the news for weeks — complete with breathless advocacy from reporters and anchors — but Medicaid fraud in the millions of dollars barely registers even the tiniest of blips in the news cycle? What’s the journalistic defense, if any?

Back to the story at hand:
Of course the latest spending bill did nothing to slow Planned Parenthood down. Just how and why do they need a “political arm?” And why are they allowed to remain above the law?
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) says the political arm of Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin has been fined for failing to report nearly $120,000 in expenditures to support Hillary Clinton in her failed presidential bid and Russ Feingold’s failed attempt to unseat Sen. Ron Johnson (R).
The FEC report states, “Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin Political Fund failed to file two 48-Hour Reports to support independent expenditures totaling $116,898.08 disclosed on the 2016 October Quarterly Report.”
